Former Smiths Guitarist Johnny Marr Schedules Solo North American Tour

By Philip Cosores

With an upcoming album titled Playland, you wouldn’t expect Johnny Marr, best known as former guitarist and songwriter for The Smiths (though also notable as a solo artists and a brief member of Modest Mouse), to be staying at home this fall.

Coinciding with the October 6 release of  his sophomore solo album (via Warner Brothers), Marr has scheduled extensive touring behind the record. After a multi-week run through his home of the UK and Western Europe, Marr will head over to the U.S. kicking off with a November 9 show at the 9:30 Club in Washington D.C.
